You can leave the Kitchen Sink.

mI just read over at The Brainy Gamer a very interesting post about Metal Gear Solid 4 and why exactly he felt it overwhelmed, bewildered and frustrated him as a player. You should read the post on his site actually as it is very insightful.

It did make me think about the increasing number of game mechanics and elements in video and PC games and then lead me to think about how games are becoming more about a narrative experience, as opposed to a ludic one.

I am still putting my thoughts together on this, and will probably post on it later on.
